  • Our Weekend at "Lake's Edge"

    "One of my favorite things about this property was the remote, secluded location and the wonderful "homey" decor inside. It feels like home away from home, very clean and well-maintained-everything labelled to make it easier. The loft area is so neat for the kids, we have epic ping pong tournaments in the basement, listened to music using the outdoor speakers, and cooked some awesome meals on the grill. There are TV's in every room (but who wants to be indoors!) The stairs down to the water are easy to manage but maybe not for anyone unsteady on their feet or elderly. It's a mini workout to come back up the stairs ; ) The road to get to the property seems precarious but i don't have 4 wheel drive on my car and i didn't have a problem at all! They had anything we needed on site, even an extra full fridge downstairs!!-just bring your own towels and confirm check-out time so you can be out before the housekeeper shows up, ooppss : ) and bring some wood for the campfire : ) Can't wait to come back again : )"

  • Highly recommended!

    "We just returned from an incredible week at Shotwell Cottage! The place is perfect for a relaxing and overall very enjoyable getaway. Location can't be beat just a couple of miles from Skaneateles Village. The cottage and cabin are a "great duo" with both having 2 BR's and a bath, and the screened in porch is ideal as a comfortable and scenic place to see the lake, eat breakfast/dinner, and/or relax, read, or play games. The yard area is flat and looks out beautifully on the lake with the dock area just a few steps below with lounge chairs, a picnic table, and a perfectly placed grill to cook out. My daughter and other family members swam daily and made great use of everything Shotwell had to offer. Owners Steve and Sheila were a pleasure to deal with. We were greeted enthusiastically and given a nice tour of the place when we arrived and enjoyed lots of conversation with them being that they also have a background in the NYC area where we are from. Can't say enough about the experience. We hope to be back next summer!"

  • Wonderful week at a very special lakeside retreat

    "We had a wonderful family vacation at this Skaneateles Lake retreat. Our hosts, Janet and John, were very gracious. The lake was beautiful. We particularly enjoyed morning and evening kayak and canoe excursions. The accommodations were extremely clean and the cottage very cozy. The location is excellent for easy day trips to some beautiful state parks. Would recommend Watkins Glen, Taughannock Falls and Chimney Bluffs in particular. They are beautiful and within easy distance of the "Camp." And a more picturesque Finger Lakes town than Skaneateles would be hard to come by. We are looking forward to a return visit!! The Duhamels"

    "Very nice for people who love the outdoors and are physically fit. Wonderful scenery and good fishing. Nice quiet town with good restaurants. Loved the Bass Pro Shop at Auburn."
